Announcement April 5, 2011

 

 

 

 

I realize that this website is called “Firearms Canada”, but knives are only a logical accoutrement.  To that end, we have added an additional category to the buy and sell where our members can post their knives.  If this category proves popular, we will further refine the knife directory for ease of navigation.

Clearing a Double Feed in your Remington 870

Training January 20, 2011

 

 

 

A friend of mine was having some issues with his pump action shotgun when we were hunting in the marshlands of Ladner BC.  The shell latch would fail which would cause a double feed in the shotgun essentially jamming the action open and rendering fire firearm inoperable.  He explained to me that this was happening on a regular basis and that he would have to use his knife or a stick to pry the round out.

I showed him a simple stoppage clearance drill that we commonly teach on our shotgun courses.

Canadian Firearms Safety Course and Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course

Training January 6, 2011

 

As discussed in a previous post, if you wish to obtain a Canadian firearm license (PAL) you must first successfully complete the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and possibly the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course depending on the classification of firearms you wish to possess and acquire.

The Canadian Firearms Safety Course came into inception in 1994 and it was intended to be an all inclusive introduction into the safe and legal use of firearms.  When designing the course, the Canadian government met with various representatives from different branches of firearms use and ownership and asked for their input.

Why does anyone “need” a firearm in Canada?

Editorial January 6, 2011

 

The question of necessity as it pertains to firearms in Canada is an interesting one.  Sure we have all heard our American counterparts’ mantra about their “right to bear arms”, but this is Canada and the reoccurring question I have heard is “why on earth would anyone need a firearm”?

Dispelling the Myth’s of Firearms Ownership In Canada

Editorial January 6, 2011

I have been fortunate enough to have firearms experts safely instruct and mentor me from a very early age. Including the same firearms training as the police before I reached my teens, and soon after held certifications from Smith and Wesson, Glock, Remington, Beretta, and the Canadian government to name a few. I have been fortunate to be exposed to the professional side of firearms ownership, and that expertise has shaped my perspective of firearms ownership in Canada. I want to give back to the community by dispelling some of the firearm myths as well as answer the questions I hear most frequently. Some points of interest that have been raised are:

  • Why would anyone need a firearm?
  • Can anyone own firearms in Canada?  If so, what types of firearms and how do they start?
  • How can you legally
    • Store
    • transport or,
    • display firearms
    • My relative has a firearm that they left for me, what do I do?

If you have any questions you would like to have answered, by all means drop me an email and I will do my best to have them addressed.
